Temple Fork Trail System

Logan,Utah ATV Trail Description

Logan Canyon (also known as Bear Lake Summit, Blacksmith Fork Canyon, or the Temple Fork Trail System) has some great places to ride ATV’s for every type of rider. With an estimated 200+ miles of great trails, it’s a fun place to spend a long weekend exploring or just head up for a few hours. In order to really see all this trail system has to offer, several trips will need to be made and started from different trail head locations. Logan Canyon is east of Logan city and west of Garden city or Bear Lake. There are several places to park and ride this trail all along US-89. A good map will come in handy as you follow this trail system and look for different trail heads.

Most of the trail is jeep width and winds through cedars, pines, aspen, and sagebrush. It can definitely get rocky in some places and can be very dusty when it hasn’t rained in a while. This trail system offers some incredible views of Bear Lake and wildlife can been seen all along the trail. Because of the harsh winters, the Logan Canyon ATV trails are typically difficult to ride before Memorial Day and sometime even in to late June.

Trail Description

The Paiute Trail System is a comprehensive trail system that connects central Utah towns. Fillmore, Richfield, Salina, Beaver, Marysville, Joseph, Kanosh, Meadow, and many more. Riders can travel into these towns on designated streets to purchase fuel and supplies or find a hotel. The Paiute atv trail is known as one of the top rated trail systems in the US and is a MUST ride for all Utah atv enthusiasts.

The Marysvale section of the Paiute trail is one of the most popular. Many riders use the city of Marysvale as their base camp as the trail literally runs around the small town. You can take the trail west out of Marysvale and follow Beaver Creek Canyon until it joins the main trail, or you can head east and cross the Sevier River until you join the main trail. ATVs are even allowed on designated streets within town boundries. There are also several places to stay in Marysvale including hotels and campsites. The town has restaurants and ATV rental and parts shops.

Because the Paiute Trail System has so many miles of trails and points of origination, we’ve broken the Paiute Trail into the following sections:

• Circleville
• Koosharem
• Fillmore
• Kanosh
• Beaver
• Marysvale
• Richfield
• Salina

There are over 2000 miles of interconnected trails with great views. Many of the trails and roads are marked with appropriate signs, but there are some that are not. It is highly recommended that riders take trail maps and GPS units with them as they ride. It’s also recommended that riders know what sections they would like to ride before going out. A large portion of this trail system is actually accessible by truck, but there are some difficult double track sections of trail that should only be tackled by experienced riders.

We are gathering more trail information specific to each of the major towns associated with the Paiute Trail. If you are familiar with the trails in these areas and would like to provide content or pictures please send an email to [email protected].
